Nebraska National Forest

The Nebraska National Forest is a United States National Forest located within the U. S. state of Nebraska. The total area of the national forest is 222 sq miles; the forest is managed by the U. S. Forest Service's Nebraska Forests and Grasslands Supervisor's Office in Nebraska; the national forest includes two ranger districts, the Bessey Ranger District and the Pine Ridge Ranger District. In descending order of land, the forest lies in parts of Thomas, Dawes and Sioux counties. Nebraska National Forest was established on November 15, 1907 by the consolidation of three smaller forests: Dismal River and North Platte National Forests. At one point it was the largest man-made forest in the world, but has been surpassed by a forest in China; the urban forest of Johannesburg, South Africa is cited as the largest man-made forest, but is only the largest urban forest. The 90,000-acre Bessey Ranger District is in the Sandhills of central Nebraska. Encompassing about 63.9 % of the forest's total area, it lies in parts of Blaine counties.

It was established in 1902 by Charles E. Bessey because he believed the area to have once had a natural forest and as an experiment to see if forests could be recreated in treeless areas of the Great Plains for use as a national timber reserve; this effort resulted in the largest human-planted forest in the United States. Today the forest's nursery supplies 2.5 to 3 million seedlings per year. The Bessey Tree Nursery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There is a local ranger district office in Halsey; the 52,000 acres Pine Ridge Ranger District is in the Pine Ridge region of northwest Nebraska. It contains about 36.1% of the forest's total area, it lies in part of Dawes and Sioux counties. The native ponderosa forests were added to the National Forest system in the 1950s; the Soldier Creek Wilderness, a federally designated wilderness area, is in the forest. The 6,600-acre Pine Ridge National Recreation Area is located within the ranger district; the Nebraska National Forest is managed by the Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands Supervisor's Office in Chadron.

Additionally, this office manages the following public lands: Samuel R. McKelvie National Forest Buffalo Gap National Grassland Fort Pierre National Grassland Oglala National Grassland List of U. S.
